The Election Commission on Tuesday rejected the EVM tampering claims made by the Aam Aadmi Party as its MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj demonstrated in Delhi Assembly how the voting machine can be tampered with. The EC called EVM used by Bhardwaj in Assembly a ‘look-alike gadget’ of what is used during elections.
“It is common sense that gadgets other than ECI-EVMs can be programmed to perform in a pre-determined way, but it simply cannot be implied that ECI-EVMs will behave in the same manner because they are technically secured and function under an elaborate administrative and security protocol,” the Commission said in a statement.
